development of CO2 emissions
Whilst India’s emissions of CO2 will almost triple under the Reference scenario, under the Energy [R]evolution scenario they will increase from 1,307 million tonnes in 2007 to 1,620 mt in 2050. Annual per capita emissions will drop from 1.1 t to 1 t.
The advanced Energy [R]evolution scenario will shift the peak of energy related CO2 emissions to more than 10 years earlier than in the basic version, leading to 0.9 t per capita by 2030 and 0.3 t by 2050. By 2050, India ́s CO2 emissions will be 85% of 1990 levels.
